I was driving down the road&pulled over to the ditch because I felt like I shouldn't be driving. My friend lived close so I started walking to their apartment. I was walking about a half a mile away from my car when police stopped me because I looked suspicious to them because I was walking down the road alone and they had seen my car parked on the side of the road and ran my plates. Then they started questioning me about driving and it was almost like harassment and I was drinking and they would not stop asking me about driving so I said I had been driving. This is when they arrested me. I went to court in the beginning of November and the police that arrested me did not show, so now the date is pushed back to December and it is a jury trial. This is my 1st offense. Please help. Thanks

I am on misdemeanor probation in Michigan for a DUI. I have a job opportunity in Oklahoma City where my x wife and children live. This move would start the reconciliation process for my marriage and would get me MUCH closer to my children. My attorney will be presenting my case to the judge at a formal hearing day after tomorrow. What can I expect? I have been complying with everything that my probation has required. I am excited to reconnect with my family but am concerned at the same time that the judge will not allow. As a side note, I spent the last 20 plus years in Oklahoma so I have been a resident of that state.

The CCW is protection for family. Is there a form or part of the government to fill out and/or contact? The law states a person has to wait 8 years. A lot happens to a person in 1 year, much less 7. Would it just be better to wait the additional year to satisfy the Michigan code? •Operating while intoxicated, second offense, MCL 257.625(9)(b)
